Sight Unseen: Depicting Climate Change in the Light of Human Rights

Design Challenge

The aim of the design challenge is to depict climate change in the light of human rights, and by doing so, explore creative ways to science and policy communication. How and to what extent does climate change affect human rights? Can human rights contribute to climate justice? The effects of climate change on human rights and vice versa are multi-layered and complex. On one hand, the effects of climate change can cause loss of crop yields, need for displacement up to perpetuating inequality and poverty, and causing political instability. On the other hand, human rights can contribute to climate justice with citizens suing governments and corporations over climate policy.
